This is the way I play it, sounds pretty close to me:



(Intro: E A E A)

A               E
Stay where you are,
                    B
Don't jump on any planes.
                    E
And I'll keep on kicking myself
                        B
For having let you get away.

                            A
But I will say it's circumstance
                   E
And point to the vein.
                          E7
Chalk it all up to the weather
                    A
And not to your disdain.

      A          E
I'll yell from afar
                        B
If I need to call you names.
                      E
Forgo the thought of killing myself,
                       B
Instead I'll let you take aim.

                     A
And force your declaration
               E
Of what we became.
                         E7
Sure, on paper it looks good,
                    A
If you ignore the stains.

           A                       E
It's the little things that set me off.
         A                             E    B
Your favorite shirt is someone else's cloth...

(Interlude: E A E A)

A                E
So stay who you are,
                            B
Though some would call it strange.
                  E
And I'll keep on kidding myself
                      B
That I can make you change.

                   A
You know more than anyone
               E
My need to deceive.
                           E7
And while I can fool the world,
              A
Mostly I fool me.

            A                       E
It's the little things that set me off,
       A                             E
Like walking by our favorite coffee shop,
     A                             E
Or seeing your haircut at the bus stop,
     A                                   E    B
Or hearing someone cough just like you cough.

       E
Just hold
   A
A moment.
   B           A
Please, humour me.
     E
I'm not
   A
Reacting
   E     B
Fanatically.
      E          B          A
And hear how my voice is a code
    A
To you...
     E
All Dots
      A
And Dashes
       E
Mixed up
     B
In clues...

     E
my love
